Background Discussion


• Since the late 1990’s, new development has been generally focused east of Interstate 75 and Southwest County has been in a slow, but steady decline in terms of indicators such as property values, average household income levels and other factors in comparison to the overall county. The age of infrastructure, housing, code enforcement cases, crime, and numbers of rental properties in established neighborhoods have been increasing over the years.

• These trends have been recognized in various plans, studies and by the public for over a decade. The current land development regulations (Comprehensive Plan and Land Development Code) do not accommodate the needs of these older and established urban areas. The existing regulations prescribe “suburban” types of uses and development pattern, making infill, development and redevelopment in these areas more difficult and more expensive than other areas of the county.

• The main focus of the amendments is to improve opportunities for infill, redevelopment and development along the major corridors. The project scope does not include residential subdivisions or existing neighborhoods, just the lands along major corridors in Southwest County’s Urban Service Area. These major corridors include portions of the Tamiami Trail, 15th Street East, 53rd Ave/SR 70, Cortez Road, Manatee Avenue West, and 1st Street within the Urban Service Area of the County.

• The proposed amendments generally provide greater flexibility in the regulations, allows for moderate increases in density and intensity of development, and allows residential and mixed-use development patterns to occur along the corridors.

• Staff recommends transmittal of the plan amendments.
